Since Donald Trump looks like he likely will be the GOP nominee for president, let’s take a look at where he stands on the issue of marriage for same-sex couples.
1. The Donald is definitely not shy about his opinion.
“I’m not in favor of gay marriage,” he said on Fox News.
He made the same comment on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” saying, “I live in New York. New York is a place with lots of gays and I think it’s great, but I’m not in favor of gay marriage.”
2. Even though he has “so many fabulous” gay friends, Trump literally compared same-sex marriage to choosing the wrong kind of golf putter.
“It’s like in golf. A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive. It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist,” he said.
